I'm sure and it only takes 5 mins to make a call. I was told that this person purchased another unit that day and put everything in it too sort threw. My unit and someone else to be exact. That theory made more sense as at least where my unit was concerned again a few hours he couldn't have been looking to recoup much. Those containers were deep. I packed most of them. Nevertheless contents clearly marked and packaged is not trash, but to him I'm sure it is. It is what it is.

He did purchase another unit and rents a room there that he uses to sort and store from other auctions.  Unless the stuff is in the back of this unit and its slipped his mine its most likely gone per our previous convo.  He is a good guy and does try to give back stuff but if needs the room its gone.

He is only one guy, getting on in years and has one truck so everything he does he does by himself which may have bought you some time.  I will probably see him on Monday for another auction so I will ask him again to double check.

As much as the storage facilities are going through units nowadays and picking out the best inventory (Don't lie, we KNOW most of you or your employees are doing it!) Why don't the facilities just go in and pre-sort or remove the personals prior to auction. Like I said, we all know the ole' "We haven't been in the unit." or "we don't know what's in there." is a load of BS at 90% of the storage facilities anyway!

For the same reason a burglar doesn't clean up your house after they ransack it. Takes too much time and effort with no up side.
